Low Sodium Goat Cheese Dip

Quick and Creamy Herb Dip

Today I have got another dip for you.  This one is super easy and pairs great with unsalted potato chips or fresh cut veggies.   A simple combination of goat cheese, sour cream, Herbs de Provence, fresh ground black pepper, and green onion come together to form a creamy, satisfying dip.

Herbs de Provence is a key ingredient of this dip and is one of my favorite spices. I use it often – it is great for dips, sauteed mushrooms, roasted vegetables, and more.  It has a great savory flavor that is really wonderful in low sodium recipes (where we are always seeking more robust flavors to replace salt).

On a final note, Joe’s favorite unsalted potato chips are Tim’s Cascade – they are super crunchy and less greasy than some of the other options out there.  Speaking of other options, we occasionally buy Kettle Brand Unsalted Potato Chips, which a good alternative if you can’t find Tim’s.

We like the dip to be very thick. If you prefer a thinner consistency, add a bit more sour cream.  Remember that doing so will change the nutritional value.

I love tinkering in the kitchen. I am incapable of seeing a recipe and making it as-is. This tendency to tweak recipes has come in handy in adapting our family favorites to be low sodium-friendly.
